Legend of the Five Rings sketches

Some of these are from the recent sets, some not. I just haven't shown them anywhere before, so this is as good a place as any to show how this work started out. Are they all works of genius? probably not. But they are some of my personal favorites from recent years. As you can probably tell I develop them to different levels of completion in this stage, and I would like to say its an artistic choice, something done for the needs of the individual image. But really its just how much time I had to devote to the sketch phase of each piece. And how confident I am in the art director not asking me to make huge changes to the image.
